that in total to our adversaries. in this case, it is the taliban. to get to your point about afghanistan being a base for al qaeda, it has been the goal of the administration to eliminate afghanistan as a base for al qaeda and similar elements. it remains to be seen if they can do that. a drawdown will make it more difficult for us to accomplish that in the long run. host: a couple comments on twitter, asking questions about positive accomplishments. guest: the surge was designed to replicate what happened in iraq. in iraq, you had a situation with the anbar awakening. you had the situation, being in, using local forces in order to gain the upper hand against the extremists, whether they were affiliated with al qaeda or were local sympathizers with saddam hussein. that basically worked from a military perspective. when you go to afghanistan, the time when general petraeus became the commander, the attempt was made to replicate what happened. the results were mixed. you had similar afghan units in several provinces that have been turned into a pretty decent area of success for our research effo

. that's why the taliban were not that hard to overthrow in 2001, because the people of afghanistan turned against this barbaric code that the taliban were trying to impose. and this is, you know, in iraq and afghanistan, hardly two of the most liberal, cosmo cosmopolitan countries in the world. today i suspect you're seeing much the same thing in northern mali. i suspect it's not proving very popular. however, the reason why these groups can have enduring appeal is because there's not a good alternative. and the problem that we faced, for example, in afghanistan is that brutal and unpopular as the taliban are, the government has often been worse because the government has not delivered any kind of justice. what the government delivers is a decision that goes to the highest bidder. so bad as the taliban may be, they're less corrupt, and you will get a more or less honest judgment out of them which will then be enforced with barbaric severity. that's not the ideal that people want, but it may be better than the alternative. i think the challenge that we face in countries such as mali

at the numbers. now we know the numbers were wrong. taliban attacks are not on the way down in afghanistan. as violent in 2012 as it was in 2011. no change at all. jennifer griffin live at the pentagon tonight. jennifer, what happened? >> well, with little fanfare, shep, u.s. and nate officials in afghanistan removed from their web site the month-to-month figure saying attacks by the taliban were down by 7% last year. there seemed to be a mistake. a mistake that led to administration officials making statements like this. >> violence levels have been trending downward in the last two years after five years of steady increases beginning in 2006. >> the problem is the attacks weren't trending downward. they were exactly the same as in 2011. an embarrassing admission by the pentagon that the the narrative about how the president's strategy in afghanistan was bearing fruit may have been misleading, shep. >> shepard: they must be making some case at the pentagon in their own defense. >> well, in essence, they blame the afghans. the afghan commanders supposedly forgot to submit their field repor
the isaf numbers that they said their correct in the numbers on a number of taliban attacks last year. a couple questions. the report to congress is based on our numbers, are you going to correct a report? also, does this lead to a rethinking about sure strength of the taliban, given you miscalculated the tax initiative? >> this is a regrettable error that was discovered during a routine quality check. making the appropriate adjustments. the fact that 80% of the violence taking place in areas remains unchanged. as we've said repeatedly, we pushed the taliban out of the population centers and they've failed to retake any areas they lost during the surgeon this remains true. additionally, the trend to currently are annoyed for the vast majority of operations and have taken a leading role in providing security for 87% of the country's population. there's a tendency to fixate on one metric, a particular database number or insider attacks are casualties. the complete picture process in afghanistan is more nuanced and i would encourage you to look at the overall picture. we're looking to fi
are more and more effective in powering afghan communities to defend against taliban intimidation and violence. plans are being developed to increase the authorized size of the alp program from 30,000 to 45,000. the next centcom cmander will also play an important role in shaping our enduring partnership with afghanistan after 2014. the partnership that i fully support. ike m. concerned however by the plants to reduce the afghan national security forces by a third starting in 2015. 352,000 to 230,000 by 2017. i believe that any future reductions in the size of the afghan forces should be based on security conditions in afghanistan at that time and this afghan security forces make and providing for their country security, we should reassure them that we will continue to support these efforts by deciding that as we withdraw our forces that the won't get drawdo and afghan forces. progress in afghanistan remains fragile and significant challenges to afghanistan's long-term stability remain. among the greatest threat to its stability are the safe havens for afghan insurgents across the
the taliban among them. >> let me get that. we consider those groups, obviously a threat to the united states. they're the groups that we are in a conflict with, authorized by the authorization for use of military force by the congress and those are the groups against which we run our efforts primarily around, in afghanistan. in south asia, and in other parts of the world. that's the focus of the united states effort because those are the groups that threaten the united states. what president karzai is sayi and we e movi to implement that decisions, in support of this, he is saying that afghans should provide for the core security in afghanistan. that they should be in the lead focused against the insurgency which threatens the afghan government. that's the taliban. >> right. >> and but that's what we're training in supporting and resourcing the afghans to do. and so very importantly, this may, may of 2013, 2013, the mission, the focus of the u.s. forces and the isap forces, the international forces working with the united states will change. and as of may of 2013, these forces, our forces wi
enough after the united states leaves to with stan the taliban and the taliban is able to gain somewhat approaching the power they had previously when they had power, that they would welcome al-qaeda back. >> well, you know, one of the big questions that has not been answered by the president's advisors is what's the american military presence going to be after 2014. in the state of the union, he said we'll be down basically by half a year from now. there are 66,000 now. at the end of the february next year it will be 32,000. but what happens after 2014 when the so-called war is over and there are a whole number of options on the table, anywhere i'd say from 3,000 troops to 10,000 troops or 9,000 troops. and also the capabilities that could be kept in the country from the u.s. side counterterrorism error and all that. so i think what military posture the u.s. agrees to keep in after 2014, and that will effect what nato agrees to do, are the non-u.s. part of nato i think will have a big effect what happens in afghanistan in terms of this question. we should be able to preclude that if th
